Really poor video quality. Super camp, maybe that's why it didn't do much for this viewer. Characters were over the top and unbelievable. But it was okay funny.

"This dvd had its moments, but only a few. I enjoy camp, and have a good sense of humor, but there was very little humor here. The acting and dialogue were so poor that I couldn't enjoy the camp value that was intended. Sound quality was also very poor; at various points in the movie I couldn't hear what was being said because of the loud background music. Not worth the money by a long shot!"

"This is neither the best movie nor the worst, but middle-ground. I think it attempts to be more than it is, which is mildly eye-popping. if you're the type to actually WATCH soap operas and get a kick out of the spoofing of them, you'd be better off with SOAP (the wonderful sally field movie). If you're into gay films, well there's really not much of that here. sure you have one hubby lamenting the constant provocations of his brother-in-law, but that is only talked about, and you get very little of it on-screen (unfortunately). the majority of the film is the over-the-top imitation bette midler performance offered by the grande dame (really a guy in drag) and her insane hubby. But the acting is all over the place, as sometimes the actors are playing it straight while delivering rotten dialogue (the actress playing cynthia is wonderful) and other times (the actors playing the hubby and the brother nicholas) the acting - and dialogue - are deliberately bad to showcase how bad soaps are in general. I really think the actors here could be good actors, but the thing is, like a lot of soap actors hired for their hunk appeal, they're not meant to be good. But there are some bad casting choices here, mainly the houseboy, who seems to be a twink in search of a - what? I couldn't see the appeal, frankly, and found tiresome all the scenes which were about him or featured him. In fact, it seemed his scenes were all some different - purposeless - movie. One additional bit of carping, that I found distracting, is why are all the men wearing lip gloss? I wanted to take a tissue and wipe all the faces. So if you're looking for a gay film, you're actually better off looking elsewhere. Or just rent this one, for an experiment. this is definitely a love it or leave it film."
All the acting of a porn film, but none of the sex

"This video (I hesitate to call it a movie because it was NOT a movie. Just a loose assortment of scenes that were overacted, underwritten and barely directed.) was one of the worst things I have ever seen. There wasn't a single moment when anything happening in it made sense. I watch soap operas, and this wasn't even close to a parody. Say what you will of the soap genre, there's better acting in any daytime sudser than in this piece of trash. At least in a soap opera, you feel for at least one character. I was hoping there would be a delightful twist where everyone was shot to death at the end, but no such luck. I guess they're saving that for a sequel."
